anyway. >> this is a black elected member of the city council, is that right? >> that's correct. because of that, he lost his seat. d.o.j. came back -- you know, deemed it, i guess, unconstitutional. and they had to redo. and they had an at-large vote and he was the top vote-getter. it was designed to dilute the black community. >> is this what this case ultimately rests on? perfect for this, i've worked in the court. i've spent some time in the court. how fact down this case seems. it really seems like the court is going to make some determination about this basically sociological fact about the covered jurisdictions which is how much racism is there? how imbedded are these practices? it seems a strange thing for the court to be doing? >> it is a strange thing, chris. what's interesting congress asked all these questions about whether or not racial discrimination is prevalent in the covered jurisdictions. they analyzed looking at the covered jurisdictions versus the uncovered. i know there's rhetoric that he didn't do that. but they did. and congress looked at it. >> 21 hearing
